Universal and Blumhouse Productions' The Invisible Man has found its leading man.
According to Deadline, The Haunting of Hill House star Oliver Jackson-Cohen will disappear in the role. Jackson-Cohen joins a cast that also includes Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer and Storm Reid. The film is expected to start production this month in Sydney, Australia.
Jackson-Cohen is no stranger to horror. In The Haunting of Hill House, he played Luke Crain, a member of a family terrorized by spirits in a secluded mansion. He appeared as Jonathan Harker in 2013's short-lived Dracula series. His past credits also include Emerald City, What's Your Number?, Going the Distance, The Secret River and The Raven.
After losing original star Johnny Depp at the beginning of the year, Universal signed Insidious: Chapter 3 filmmaker Leigh Whannell to write, direct and produce the upcoming reboot alongside Jason Blum. Originally planned as part of Universal's shared cinematic horror universe, aptly dubbed Dark Universe, the film is now expected to be a standalone movie.
No official release date for The Invisible Man has been announced by Universal, but it's expected to arrive some time in 2020.
